News Facts

Gartner, Inc. has placed Oracle in the Leaders Quadrant of its 2013 report, “Magic Quadrant for Business Intelligence and Analytics Platforms,” Oracle today announced. (1)
Oracle has been named Leader in Business Intelligence for the seventh consecutive year.
Gartner’s Magic Quadrant reports position vendors within a particular quadrant based on their completeness of vision and ability to execute.
According to Gartner, “Leaders are vendors that are strong in the breadth and depth of their BI platform capabilities, and can deliver on enterprise wide implementations that support a broad BI strategy. Leaders articulate a business proposition that resonates with buyers, supported by the viability and operational capability to deliver on a global basis. Small vendors which may lack strong scores for geographic or vertical strategy, or breadth of capabilities in the offering (product) criterion, are still leaders due to the strength of their market understanding and marketing strategy. The evidence that they are market leaders comes from the fact that most of the market is trying to imitate the simplicity of their architecture and the ease of use that it provides.”
Oracle’s positioning in the Leaders Quadrant showcases how Oracle Business Analytics portfolio provides customers with an end-to-end family of analytic solutions ranging from descriptive to prescriptive based on a comprehensive set of BI, advanced analytics and CPM functionality that is also integrated and optimized with the Oracle technology stack.
